I use a 34mm on the MP9, it's a little close to sticking past the chassis but haven't had any issues.

You know what, you won't have any drama's with the 34mm until 6 months down the track where your winning the best race you've ever had and boom it catches a rock and flames out.
Honestly mate, prevention is always better than the cure. I always look for potential race enders and do my best to remove them.

I use MP7.5 K3 enigne mounts and a 32mm flywheel. My clutchbell do not hit the chassis. And i use longer scrwesfor the plates that atatch enignemounts to chassi. I also use a nut ontop to sequre the screws.

Can I use IFW458 with my original out of box front arm instead of IS119-41 that I have been reading to strengthen the front arm when using alum hub?

That's exactly what ended Tebo's chances of winning the Worlds in Thailand, not sure if he had a 34mm flywheel fitted but whatever he had hit a rock in the double single section. I saw it happen right in front of me.

dameetz, Yes you can use the Hard Front Lower Sus. Shaft(IFW458) with the regular front arms(IF427B). You'll just need to ream out the captured hole a little in the back of the arm, so that IFW458 can pass through. As info, part#IS119-41 is the rear outer hingepin. Hope that helps.

I don't know if this has been discussed, but has anyone tried the RS chassis? Curious to know if it allows for more flex on bumpy tracks, or if perhaps it tweaks faster?
